Another service provided by Dr. Basa is placement of the SAVI applicator and MammoSite for partial breast irradiation.
Partial breast irradiation allows women with early breast cancer to receive focused radiation over 5 days compared to the typical 6 weeks of radiation therapy. This speeds up the return to normal life activities. These treatment devices are known as Brachytherapy or internally-delivered radiation and is a technique that spares healthy tissue and treats only the tissue around your tumor cavity.
